Born in 1989 in Norwich, England, DJ Sinista was intrigued by music from a very young age and always felt a strong connection with hip hop. After high school, he decided to attend a music college in England called Access To Music. While there, he got into making radio shows and met Mr. Jason -- the pair started the now-defunct UK College Show on BTR. Sinista continued to produce the show until leaving college in 2009.
A few months later, he and Mr. Jason started the UK Hip Hop Show, also on BTR, playing some of the dopest hip hop the UK has to offer. Eventually, after the show had been running for a few years and built up a fan base, Sinista was joined by new co-host Big Homie Stark Note, while production of the show moved to Cabin Studio, and the musical madness has gone from strength to strength ever since.
In addition to producing his show for BTR, Sinista raps in a group called the Planet Of The Fakes which has played shows all over the east of England while releasing four EPs in four years. Their debut full-length, Shadow Of The Lunatic, is out Christmas 2015 on German-based Britcore Rawmance Records.
It's October and the sun is still shining! So make the most of this apparent Indian Summer and chill with Sinista as we play some dope UK Hip Hop. There is no Stark Note this month due to a studio relocation, but he will be back very soon. While Stark Note might be absent the heavy UK Hip Hop is not! Dirty Dike's latest offering "Sucking Prawns In the Moonlight" Is the Album Of The Month, plus there is brand new music from the likes, Ray Vendetta, Stig Of The Dump, Holly Flo Lightly and many more. Hope you enjoy!
March! And the fact that the temperature is starting to rise as the UK Hip Hop show comes back is no coincidence. Sinista & Stark Note return with dope tracks from the likes of Ray Vendetta, Fliptrix and many more. The Four Owls recently returned with their sterling "Natural Order" offering and that is featured as our Album Of The Month. Cappo's "Spaz The World" is getting spun in Classic Corner and when you add that to everything else in this months show you come up with a phat sack of dopiness we hope you all enjoy.
Happy new year to every one out there. We hope you have had a good holiday period and are ready for some more UK Hip Hop. Sadly we start the year on a sombre note, after hearing the news of Mark B’s death. Mark, B was one of the most well respected producers this country has ever produced, and released classic albums with the likes of Task Force and Blade. Tributes have been pouring in from artists and fans alike from all over the world and this months show is dedicated to Mark B. Our thoughts are with Mark's family and friends.
It's December and the holiday season is in full effect! Sinista returns with the annual “Best Of” show, where he takes you through the best the UK has had to offer in 2015. Dope tracks from the likes of Mic Righteous, Chrome & Illinspired, Akala, Triple Darknes and many,many more. So Merry Christmas and we hope you enjoy the show.
November is upon us and the UK Hip Hop exponents known as Sinsta & Stark Note have returned with a boot full of UKHH! There is music from the likes of Cappo, Ricky Lix, Gi3mo and many more. Ray Vendetta's Adamantium Archives is the Album Of The Month and the ever ready legendary Raga Twins are getting a spin in Classic Corner as we feature "Reggae Owes Me Money". So pump the volume up, put the kettle on and enjoy some DOPE UK Hip Hop.
